Michael Aram Furniture is handcrafted, with no two pieces ever alike. Each piece in this collection undergoes a series of casting, filing, welding and oxidation techniques. The finish is a result of a specialized patination process. Please note that the variations in texture and color are inherent to the handmade process and enhance the beauty of this piece. Every piece is truly a work of art.

The Butterfly Ginkgo Furniture Collection celebrates the representation of flora as fauna. Michael's fascination with a particular type of ginkgo tree...Ginkgo Biloba, or "Butterfly Ginkgo", which grows with a double leaf reminiscent of a butterfly's wings...gave rise to a fantasia image of the plant. Executed at the highest level of handcraftmanship, each piece is rendered in solid brass. The pieces in the collection are a tour de force of Indian craft and capture the poetic spirit that is so deeply indicative of Michael's work.

"The first time I saw this tree, it literally looked like it had been completely overtaken by butterflies...as if they would all take flight the moment I walked too close or made a noise. The idea that the leaves could evoke the beauty of butterflies was magical to me, like trees that can metamorphose from flora to fauna in the blink of an eye."
